I'm not really sure exactly what your question is but if you are asking how to get 50/50 mix, just mix equal amounts of gumpaste with equal amounts of gumpaste. It will give you a gumpaste that has more working time than gumpaste along.

Hmmm, having some issues myself right now so I may try this.

I do this all the time for flowers, bows, etc. I just take a lump of fondant and an equal sized lump (depending on how much I need) of gumpaste and knead them together by hand until they are totally blended with one another. It doesn't usually take much time.
